We could not be happier with our decision to send our kids to St. Pats. Our daughter is on her 3rd year at the school and is thriving during one of the hardest years of adjustment for many during pandemic. I was so impressed at the school's pivot to distance learning when the pandemic occurred and continuous effort to increase safety to reopen, and provide options for many of us working parents to ensure our kids receive the best education safely. If requiring virtual learning, it's the best around. If wanting to have kids in person, they are well taken care of and I have zero worries each day as I've watched the school maneuver this crisis. It's years like this that you especially appreciate what you have. We couldn't feel more secure in our decision to send our kids to St. Pats. I'm in awe by the principal, Ms. Hadsell's responsiveness and transparency with all parents. The hands on education is also unmatched. We toured many schools in Marin before making our decision and feel assured we made the absolute best choice for our children.
2020 was an extremely tough year for so many, but I can say with confidence that St. Patrick School has been the saving grace for our children as well as our family as a whole throughout this year. The amount of effort, detail, and love put into getting our kids back in school and keeping every child safe is extraordinary. This pandemic has overwhelmingly reinforced our decision to choose St. Pat's for our children's educational and overall well-being. We are so grateful to be a part of this wonderful community.
